God blessed our time in Denver. We were encouraged by the people at the Riverside Church and the bonus days in the Rockies were fabulous!
KK always chooses time looking at God’s handiwork over any fancy place I could take her! We don’t feel good about leaving Big D alone for very long. But, we arranged some things for him and stretched this trip into 4 days and 3 nights away. It was great!
My time in the Raleigh area went well. I spent one day visiting with friends discussing how Business and Professional Networks can play a big role in transforming North American Cities. That night, my co-worker (Sam) and I shared a meal with 8 seminary students and were encouraged by friends and met some new friends.
Being on the campus of Southeastern Seminary is always special to me. I remember going there 20 years ago to teach classes and challenge students to engage their churches in missions. Later, two of our daughters finished their undergraduate degrees at Southeastern. Today I am honored that Danny Akin, and many of the professors, are my friends. It was exciting to preach at the opening missions chapel.
Immediately, I left Raleigh for a couple of days in Houston. We talked about the existing ministries in Houston and spent time praying for the SBC that will be there next summer. We dreamed of ways Southern Baptists might use their time in Houston to LoveLoud and serve the city. We pray that God’s love will be demonstrated in word and deed when we arrive next June!
Finally, KK has spent a couple of weeks loving on Cari and her son Timothy. Timothy had emergency brain surgery after a fall on August 18th. KK spent a week in Nashville–in the hospital room with Cari and Timmy. As a part of his recovery process, Timmy was transferred to Children’s Hospital (here in Atlanta) for physical therapy. KK has been able to spend some time with Cari every day…loving on Timmy and serving Cari.

September promises to be an exciting month with many opportunities. I will list the prayer requests soon but it didn’t seem right to move on without giving you this update and saying a BIG THANKS to all of you who are on our Prayer Team.
